a lioness at heart. gentleness. tenderness. a power that is not my own, but comes from the One who redeemed me. the lioness goes to battle, she finds herself on the front lines. worship brings breakthrough.
If my body is a temple, Jesus is turning over tables and swinging that whip. He is disturbing me in my complacency and ego; and it hurts, there’s so much unrest. but I’m hoping it’s the way to peace. I wasn’t meant to be a marketplace, a den of thieves, worried about things and money and success and bargaining my relationships.
Unbelievable. Her joy and excitement just rubs off and I was sat here raising my hands, feeling the Holy Spirit reign down upon me. And I needed this message, and He spoke directly to my heart during this video. I praise Him in my brokenness, and I praise Him whilst waiting for healing and deliverance, because HE SHOWS UP! When I look to Him and seek His face, He doesn’t leave me with nothing, He REIGNS DOWN and lavishes me with His love, His peace, His joy and the Holy Spirit just grabs hold of my heart and just… AAAH! JESUS IS SO GOOD! GOD IS SO FAITHFUL! <3
This girl gets me pumped. Her joy is contagious :)
You know what’s beautiful about loving the Lord? He takes us in, and then He takes us deep. But then, He never stops taking us closer, or taking us deeper.
Life has been quite a silly thing in this 2012. My heart has been through a lot and my Jesus has been doing quite a work in my life. But last night I stumbled into this again, and maybe it’s weird to listen to myself, but this was precisely what I needed to hear from the Lord. Because the reality is He will never give up on me. The plans He has for my life will never not apply. And even now, a year later, He is STILL working this beautiful message and glory into my life.
He is still teaching me how to worship, except now with more faith and less feelings. I worship regardless of circumstances because He is so far beyond those. He is still teaching me how to say that “He is good; and His love endures forever” regardless of what’s going on around me, because what’s going on around me does absolutely nothing to taint His character.
Oh, I am ever still learning and ever still growing. and what a blessing to know that He uses me in the process.
